Tottenham Hotspur’s Christain Eriksen says his side do not fear Manchester United an plan to play a free-flowing game when the two meet in an English Premier League clash at Old Trafford on New Year’s Day.
“I think we should go to United and just play like we did against Stoke [which Spurs won 3-0],” said Eriksen.
“We should just play free.
“We will still get space and we just have to take our chances.
“Of course United are a better team than Stoke and we have full respect for them, but I think we can get something from the game.
“If you go there the only thing you should be afraid of is the players.
“The crowd and everything, just forget them.
“I think if (Spurs) play our own game we can make every team have a difficult evening.”
Eriksen was also full of praise for interim manager Tim Sherwood.
“The coach has told us to play more free,” added Eriksen.
“We have seen that in the recent games. He said it looked like we were a little bit afraid before.
“He said we shouldn't be afraid. He said we should just play and see that we are good. If we dare we have a really good team and really good chances.
“I think what you see now is how we should play.”
